Welcome to


growing up with parents, carers or family affected by


mental illness, physical conditions & Other Issues

We're a social collective dedicated to creating a safe online space to hold open discussions for people with parents, guardians, carers or family affected by mental illness, physical conditions, addiction and other issues.

Every week we interview different people on our CandidTalk Podcast, discussing various experiences of growing up with a parent or carer affected by different mental health conditions, illnesses and other family dynamics.



“One of the most healing things someone can do... If you have something that you feel ashamed about, go and look for people that you really admire who have the same thing.”
